Seahawks trade first-round pick to Minnesota

Speculation that the Seahawks would trade out of the first round proved true Thursday night as Seattle traded pick No. 32 to Minnesota in exchange for pick No. 40 in the second round and pick No. 108 in the fourth.

So Seattle does not get a player today but now has seven over the next two days.

Here’s how it now looks:

Second round, No. 40 (from Minnesota)

Second round, No. 64

Fourth round, No. 108 (from Minnesota)

Fourth round, No. 132

Fifth round, No. 146 (from Oakland)

Fifth round, No. 172

Sixth round, No. 208

There had been a lot of thought that Seattle might trade down to add bodies in a year when it had just six picks, and few needs for immediate help. It’s also been Seattle’s M.O. throughout the Schneider/Carroll era to trade down and add picks.

Seattle gives up eight spots in positioning to add a fourth-round pick.

Seattle will pick twice tomorrow — assuming no more trades — and then five times on day three.
